Formal applications should consist of a full Curriculum Vitae with a covering letter indicating the two projects in which they are most interested (from the list on our PhD Opportunities page
), in order of preference. Applicants should also ask two referees to write to the Institute on their behalf before the deadline.
Short-listed applicants will be invited to attend an interview and reasonable travel expenses will also be paid to those invited. See checklist opposite for the information required to be provided in your application before it can be considered.
Once awarded a PhD position at the Babraham Institute, successful applicants will then be required to apply for admission to the University of Cambridge
. Students will not be able to take up the award unless they meet all University eligibility criteria and are successful in securing admission to the University. In addition, they will not be able to apply for a visa (if needed) until they hold an unconditional offer from the University.
Incomplete applications will not be considered.
